Data Collection and Reporting

This report discusses a scoping review conducted to identify social determinants of health (SDOH) that are risk factors for, or associated with outcomes of, COVID-19, and to understand the definitions, characteristics, and measures of SDOH data elements as they were used in studies analyzing statistical associations with the risk for COVID-19 infection and COVID-19-related outcomes in the United States. The granular evidence provided by the scoping review findings calls for the standardization of SDOH data across health care, public health, and research.
